Stong short guys with short arms have the advantage.
That's my thoughts as well. The shorter the forarms, the better advantage you have...assuming you aren't an absolute pussy.

Technique is a lot. I had a friend who was almost unbeatable in an arm wrestle because he was able to allow his wrist to bend back so far that it was almost impossible to get the leverage required to take his arm down even though he wasn't very strong. Frustrating and led me to the conclusion (since my wrist is not nearly so flexible) that arm wrestling is for FRUITCAKES!
